Here's some happy news to start the week with - Mark Wright and Michelle Keegan have got engaged.

The couple, both 26, are expected to sign a huge magazine deal to cover their big day.

A source told The Mirror: “Mark planned the proposal for some time. For the past few months he has known that Michelle is The One and wanted to surprise her with a romantic proposal.

“After designing the ring himself – which he has been describing as a ‘monster rock’ – he took it to Dubai. The place is special because it’s where they had their first official kiss. Both are blissfully in love and Michelle is utterly made-up.”

Both have been engaged before - Michelle with Max George of The Wanted and Mark with his former 'TOWIE' girlfriend Lauren Goodger.

Congrats to them both.
